"The child who lives in such an atmosphere of love and warmth and who has around him really good examples for his imitation, is living in his right element." - Rudolf Steiner

The young child is best nurtured in a homely environment, where loving relationships, steady rhythm and routine of daily life, and wholesome nutrition can be established. To help parents learn more about these things and provide social time for their child as well as themselves as adults, the school runs 5 playgroups, one each morning of the week and an afternoon Pregnancy to Walking playgroup once a week. Parents attend one of these with their child and an experienced Playgroup facilitator runs the morning that has songs, story, play time, activities and morning tea, where children and parents interact together.
